“Perhaps we have forgotten that we are pioneers.”
Nothing against The Dark Knight movies, but a big part of me was counting down the days until Christopher Nolan would leave growly men in capes behind and get back to doing weird arty sci-fi. Written by Chris and Jonathan Nolan (with story by physicist Kip Thorne) and directed by Christopher Nolan, Interstellar is an original sci-fi movie starring the resurgent Matthew McConaughey and all in all seems like a gift from the big boner fairy* (*also my Halloween costume).
Co-starring Jessica Chastain, Anne Hathaway, and My Cocaine, supposedly the Interstellar script is about a group of explorers sent through a newly-discovered wormhole (the porn parody writes itself), but this teaser doesn’t give much away. Just Matty McC driving his old beat up pick-up truck (he probably had a borrowed hoodie stashed back there) and crying about our decision to give up the pursuit of space travel. Yeah, listen to Matthew McConaughey, government, get your ass to space. I think it makes the voiceover better if you imagine McConaughey saying it shirtless while playing the bongos, but that’s true of most things.
Interstellar opens November 7th, 2014.
